Originally named The Wayside Foundation, Noffs Foundation was founded in 1970 by the great Australian humanitarian, Reverend Ted Noffs and his wife Margaret Noffs.

During their remarkable careers of pioneering initiatives for young people, the Noffs established Sydney’s first crisis centre in 1968, set up the first Drug Referral Centre in Sydney in 1967, co-founded the Aboriginal Affairs Foundation in 1962 and co-founded Lifeline in 1963.

Ted’s son, Wesley and his wife Amanda Noffs took over the foundation after Ted suffered a stroke. They renamed the organisation, The Ted Noffs Foundation. Wesley and Amanda worked alongside academics to create the country’s first drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre for adolescents known as PALM. The community and government immediately supported the idea and the work of Noffs Foundation spread across Australia.
